Lost to the village on 10 April 2023

Trevor spoke for himself in 2008 (below), before dementia took its toll...

‘I have lived in Eynsham all my life, apart from a wartime stint with the RAF in Norfolk (the far east, as I like to call it) and a few years in Barnard Gate when newly-married. Shirley and I have just celebrated our golden wedding anniversary and have 3 grand-children (two in Eynsham).

‘I started work at an engineering shop in Spareacre Lane, moved on to brick-laying, then turned self-employed in the 60s when John Lopes Road was going up (but don't blame me).

‘I had a great time with the archery group until political correctness got in the way: we used to put on regular shows and handed over thousands to local charities when we closed. But I keep fit with bowling and go beating for corporate events when the chance comes along. I also enjoy winding up Bill Heine from time to time, though I think he's seen through my act as the village idiot.’
